Adventure, exploration, Jordan - Mar 11 - Mar 19, 2018

Traveler: Graham I. - Local specialist: Carmen Scholten

The trip was amazing. Carmen did a great job planning the excursion, she was always available to answer any questions or make last minute accommodations.
Akram was our guide for most of the trip. He was knowledgeable about all the sites we travelled to. Gave us lots of free time to explore. His english is impeccable but most impressive was his driving skills. Couldn't ask for a better guide.
Petra was unbelievable. We were there for 2 nights and 1 full day. If you like hiking I would recommend 2 to 3 days there. A lot more to see then just the treasury.
Overall the trip was 5 stars

Even on returning home Carmen and her KimKim team have been amazing as I left my Bose headphones in the car transfer to the airport!!! Carmen had tracked them down and sent them home to me.
First time using KimKim and I’m sure not the last! Fantastic service from everyone!!

We just returned from our Petra/Wadi Rum trip and it was an outstanding experience. The entire 4 days were great - filled with many new tastes, mind-blowing sites, and relaxation.

Our driver - Mohammad Karajeh - went out of his way offering guidance, coffees, tastes of native foods, etc. He really added touches that made our trip so memorable. My only suggestion might be to offer a range for the tent stay in Wadi Rum...I believe we might have chosen a place that had hot water. (The place was stunning and this is a minor issue). Last piece of advice: stay 2 days in Petra and 2 in Wadi Rum - so much to take in, so much to see!

Jordan 2 day trip, Jordan - Mar 16 - Mar 17, 2018

Traveler: Pheroze K. - Local specialist: Carmen Scholten

The trip planning had up and downs with regard to hotels. Carmen suggested the Movenpick as a 5 star option, but I had already seen that rooms were not available. She then came back with news that rooms were not available and suggested the option of the Hyatt Zamman as a 5 star option. Turns out it was not even a part of the Hyatt chain but just a local hotel claiming to be 5 star but certainly not of international standard.

I had to demand WiFi in the room ( arranged finally after being told that WiFi was only in community areas).
The driver and car assigned were good (once one got accustomed to the strong cigarette smell).

Carmen Scholten, local specialist, responded to this review:

Dear Pheroze,

Thank you for your feedback. We always appreciate the opportunity to upgrade our services. Due to availability, the hotel you stayed in was the best option we could find for you. I would have loved to known about the driver right away so we could have taken action, just like we did when you contacted us about the hotel. We hope you had a lovely time in Jordan and inspired you to get visit this beautiful country another time.

Thank you for traveling with In2Jordan!

Hoping to have a great journey/budget tour, Jordan - Mar 2 - Mar 8, 2018

Traveler: Gerelyn G. - Local specialist: Carmen Scholten

Thank you to Carmen who facilitated our first trip to Jordan. It eased our apprehensions knowing we have transports and guides to assist us in a foreign land. The recommendations to stay at the Wadi Rum Luxury Night camp, and accesss to the Dead Sea at Dead Sea Spa Hotel —spot on! The Backdoor hike to Petra’s Monastery from little Petra— incredible ! We are also grateful to our guide, Ibrahim whose personality and character, stands out amongst the many we have met.
Thank you again. Hope to be back soon.

Carmen Scholten, local specialist, responded to this review:

Dear Gerelyn,

Thank you so much for your kind review! It was our pleasure to have you here in Jordan. I've passed on your message to Ibrahim together with some pictures. Looking forward to having you back in the country, showing you even more special places Jordan has to offer.

Traveler: Mark N. - Local specialist: Carmen Scholten

A fantastic trip to Jordan thanks to Carmen’s expertise and knowledge. It was busy but never too hectic as we saw the amazing sites. Wael, our driver and guide was easy going and friendly, as well as very punctual. He put some miles on that car shuttling us from Amman to Wadi Rum and back again! Petra of course had to be a highlight, just magical. I also loved the vastness and beauty of Wadi Rum and our friendly guide, Rashid.

Jordan: amman, petra and wadi rum - 4 days, Jordan - Jan 20 - Jan 23, 2018

Traveler: Thanya Y. - Local specialist: Carmen Scholten

My overall experience with the travel arranged for me in Jordan was quite nice.

- I feel like I didn’t get enough information about Jordan and all the destinations I was going to prior my trip. Carmen created Vamoos app for me for my itenerary, which was great, but I thought... read more

My overall experience with the travel arranged for me in Jordan was quite nice.

Plus
- all the drivers arranged for my pick-ups were professional, polite and kind. They made some calls for me on the way to the hotel and so on to make sure everything goes smoothly. I really appriciated that

Minus
- I feel like I didn’t get enough information about Jordan and all the destinations I was going to prior my trip. Carmen created Vamoos app for me for my itenerary, which was great, but I thought I’d get more personalised information about some interesting places , where to dine, or some local facts I wouldn’t normally get from the internet. Clicking the map didn’t help much, since most of the places on the map don’t have any information. Also the traveling date was wrong, and is still wrong up til now. It’s Febuary in the app.

- on my first day, my visit to Amman beach was pretty disappointing. The facility was not great, shower room broken, no hair dryer, lockers with no lock, and no staff to borrow the lock or lend towels from. Good thing I had my towel with me so I didn’t have to, but i had a hard time showering and drying my hair after the swim, espeically with that much salt on my body and hair. I would have been willing to pay more for better places, like one of those 5 star hotel facilities nearby (Kempinski, movenpick, dead sea spa etc.)

- on my last day, it seemed like my bus ticket from Aqaba to Amman was wrong. I couldn’t read Arabic of course, but my driver was kind enough to check for me at the bus station when he dropped me off, so they changed the new one for me.
And since my bus was at 6 PM and i was dropped off at 10 AM with my luggages, I had to find a place to store those before I could do anything, which was pretty troublesome. At that point I wish I was told or suggested beforehand what to do with my luggages. In the end I mannaged to ask Movenpick hotel to keep them for me, eventhough I wasn’t staying with them.
And I also wish I was given some interesting information about Aqaba, restaurants, cafe and attractions. Since it was a very low season, whatever I tried to do (glass bottom boat tour etc.) everything was unavailable due to too small group of people joining.

I think that’s pretty much my opinion on my trip to Jordan. Thank you Carmen for all the help in planning and everything. Jordan was an amazing country and I loved my experiences there.

Dear Thanya.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that not everything was completely to your satisfaction, but please understand that we did all that was possible within your budget. And planning a driver or rental car would surely have made your trip more quick and comfortable, but also too expensive, so we hope you understand our situation. Maybe I've should have informed you better about this, my apologies.

Thank you for traveling with In2Jordan!
